Starting with successfully getting the ballot initiative approved and gathering the necessary valid signatures for recreational marijuana on the 2016 Nevada ballot and provided input while drafting the language which ultimately became The Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative, also known as Question 2, on the 2016 ballot in Nevada as an indirect initiated state statute.

Boomer Shannon, Political Advocate and Campaign Manager. Boomer is a long time successful marijuana advocate in California and runs state and local campaigns for candidates and issues.
Matt Simon, Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). In 2007, Matt founded the New Hampshire Coalition for Common Sense Marijuana Policy and began advocating for medical cannabis and decriminalization.

Director Pojunis stated “I have been involved full time in politics for nearly a decade and over the last 5 years marijuana advocacy has been extremely important to me.
